If your reading this then you probably already know of the "oil in the airbox" issue on the XP models. It is pretty easy to find topics on the subject however at least in my search there hasn't been any solutions from Polaris on this issue.
So last week I decided I'd try the advise from a fellow poster on here by the name of "cvjoint" great advise/post by the way cvjoint if you read this. After I took the pcv apart I quickly discovered that the lower o-ring on the assy. was not resting on center, which resulted in the unequal pressure resting on the o-ring there by allowing oil to pass up to the airbox. The o-ring had a detent on it and I knew it was not salvageable so I call and ordered a new one from my dealer
A few days later I get a phone call saying my parts are in and that he also ordered me a kit that was just released by Polaris. Not having a clue what this was as I haven't heard anyone on the forums talk about it I was very interested. From what I understand the below kit is very newly released, I could be wrong but I know I couldn't locate it in the Polaris Parts directory.
Below is the pictures of the kit and a few during the installation. By posting it I hope that others may not be to intimidated by installing it.

i just got mine back today from the dealer, they did the same thing, they put all 2012 parts on mine, also mine was out of warranty and they didnt charge me so I hope they didnt charge you either for all the parts.

Polaris started issuing the kit late last year. My dealer tried to get one in Dec but they were back-ordered until Jan. It also cured the problem for me.

the valve cover gasket is reusable it seems to be made of a good quality rubber,the plate is the key fix to the whole problem, I think anyway.
2 rides now and the air box is still dry.

I noticed oil in my air box today, after riding it yesterday. I will call my dealer to see what they say about it, I'm out of the warranty period though.

Interesting, I have talked to 3 dealers and they didnt know any thing about this kit, I re-used the original valve but am going to order the hose and replace it with the new cover, the original seems to be working fine, rode the hell out of it last week and no oil in box.

I own a 2010 XP.
At last this spring Polaris via the dealer corrected the oil in the air box issue. I'm thinking that Polaris was in error in not allowing the dealer to correct this sooner.
However, The shop mech. was very professional but the sales wanker made all attempts to put the fault on me for several years.
Now that the air filter is no longer covered with oil the machine runs correctly and not like the choke is shutting off the air. Mater of factly it gets with it!
Dalton clutch, 28" tires, and heavy springs are the only changes I've made that would affect the ride.
Get's a bit squirrely at about 60 MPH. But this would have to be the tires and not the machine. Could NEVER by the old fart that runs the throttle!
